energy companies that are creating jobs, it would extend unemployment insurance to 2 million americans who are actively looking for jobs out there. i have to say that ever since i took office, throughout the campaign, and over the last couple of months, my preference would have been to solve all these problems in the context of a larger agreement, a bigger deal, a grand bargain or whatever you want to call it, that solves the deficit problems in a balanced and responsible way that does not just deal with taxes but also spending so that we can put all this behind us and focus on growing our economy. with this congress, that was obviously too much to hope for at this time. [laughter] maybe we can do it in stages. we will solve this problem instead in several steps. in 2011, we started reducing the deficit through $1 trillion in spending cuts which have taken place. the agreement being worked on right now would further reduce the deficit by asking the wealthiest 2% of americans to pay higher taxes for the first time in two decades so that would add additional hundreds of billions of dolla

commissions or other groups, you mentioned the energy air force base. during the reagan administration, a great big commission that found a solution for social security, these were big public fora where discussions were held with the public and now everything seems to be happening behind closed doors. why could openness happened in years past and today we can not seem to get to deal? >> in large measure because the media has so changed. in those days, you did not have 24-hour coverage. what you find with 24-hour coverage if an idea services, at -- surfaces, at 10:00 a.m., it is dead by 2:00 p.m. because everybody goes to the cameras. the cameras are there. ever-present and wanting to hype something. before you debate it is dead. you really see that around here. >> there has been a fair bit of criticism of the president for not embracing the findings of that commission. what is your take? >> i advised the president not to embrace the specifics because i feared if he did, house republicans would automatically be in opposition. if you are part of the bowles- simpson commission you saw

dealing with energy? and by the way, let's remember, second terms, domestically, they don't last four years. you've got about a year, maybe a little bit more, before that midterm election, when you can get something done through congress. so if this is -- and by the way, the bitterness that is setting in in the personal relationships between the president and mitch mcconnell, the president and speaker boehner, i think, make it that much worse. >> oh, man, peter alexander -- >> buzz kill. >> yeah. that's reality, as chuck todd just described it, it's also very depressing. so let me ask you, within the white house, you've got a group of people who have been with the president for four years, four exhausting years. those jobs are exhausting. is there going to be any turnover, "a," in the white house staff as we approach these new negotiations on the same old problem? and "b," the level of exhaustion, frustration and anger within the white house toward the congress, as chuck todd just alluded to? >> reporter: well, we certainly know that the cabinet is going to change with the announcemen

. a lot of them are very bipartisan. there is stuff in there for energy tax credits, some for two and three-wheeled electric vehicles, but, for example, there is one on the personal level for people who live in states that do not have a state income tax, for example, they're aloud under one of these extenders to write off on their federal tax forms the state sales taxes that they pay since they're not able to write off any state income taxes. but it is mainly business tax breaks, a lot of them have been extended over the years. the nascar tax break you talked about that was put in at 2004 corporate tax bill, went for a couple of years, extended again. i went back and looked at my stories covering this, they keep coming up. there was a story from december of 2010, one from december of 2009, one from 2007. we tend to only pay attention to these special breaks that get stuffed in the bills only at this point in time, then we forget about it until congress extends them one or two years later. >> and these are not new, jamie. >> no, they're not, don. again you go back to 2004 corporate
, the energy sector is really booming. and so i think we'll get some job growth in the next several months but i think this bill means that we're going to get less jobs than we would otherwise. when you have 20 million people, already, jenna, that either don't have a job at all or don't have a full-time job, this wasn't a very smart time in my opinion to be raising these taxes on businesses and investors. it was having last night, i was up very late last night on fox as we watched that drama develop and you know the president gave his remarks. he said we need more investment in this country. of course he is right, we do need more investment in this country. why will he sign today a tax bill that raises taxes on investment? i don't get the logic to that. jenna: first good it that you were watching fox and not orange bowl, steve. you got your nose to the griped stone watching the news. >> there you go. jenna: conservatives argued for the bush-era tax cuts to stay. that is something happening in the bill for the majority of the americans. the other originalment is don't cut government spendin
